Our Story

I never quite made it as a professional snowboarder.

Or footballer. Or rugby player for that matter.

But despite not hitting the big leagues, playing sport taught me how to eat well.

Good food has always been a big part of my life. My Dad opened the first wine bar in Manchester, my Mum had her own catering company and I grew up on the most incredible home-cooked meals.

When I started working between Manchester and London, eating well suddenly became a lot trickier.

When I didn’t have time to cook, finding quick, tasty and healthy meals was next to impossible. I’d always have to compromise on taste, health, quality or price.

Some of the best meals I’ve eaten on my travels came from little street stalls, serving fresh, tasty and healthy food.

In the UK, most people don’t have a ramen stand at the end of their street. But supermarkets are everywhere.

So in 2014, with the help of expert nutritionists, top chefs and some friends who feel the same way about food as I do, I set up BOL.

BOL is all about making the most amazing dishes from around the world, fresh and ready to eat whenever you like.

I can’t promise BOL will make you jump higher or win any medals. But I can promise it will always be interesting, healthy and deliciously good for you.
